Christmas Goodies!

Sunday, December 28, 2014

Hey there, everyone! I hope you all had a fabulous Christmas, full of joy, good food, lots of fun and family and friends. =)
 
And, of course, books!
 
I was pretty pleased with my Christmas. I actually had Christmas Eve off of work - and I was finally recovering from a bad case of sinus infection. My family and I mostly hung out that night. My mom and I made cookies for Santa, as well as cooked some of the side dishes for our big Christmas get-together with the rest of the family the following day. As per tradition, my brothers and I popped a bunch of popcorn before watching a couple of movies.
 
And Christmas day was just as fun. We always get up pretty early and open presents from "Santa" as well as from each other. We spend the rest of the morning, relaxing and playing with our new goodies, before heading to my grandmothers for the big dinner.
 
To say the least, I made out like a bandit! I got plenty of books - just about every one that was on my list! As well as an Amazon gift card for the ones I didn't get!



I also got a bunch of cute non-book related stuff. I'm such a geek. The first was Anna, Elsa, and Mowgli FunkoPop Figurines to join my Merida one. I'll have a little collection before too long! I also got a Meowth winter hat from Etsy, a Pokémon keychain with chibi Sylveon, Espurr, and both versions of Meowstic, a dragon handmade by JULIE KAGAWA, and a collectible costume card of Luna Lovegood.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
I also got a new American Girl doll to add to my collection, a bunch of nice clothes, a cute purse, and a dual heat/cool headache mask and humidifier for the next time I get sick. ;)
 
Overall, it was a great Christmas! Did you do anything special for the holidays or get anything special? Feel free to let me know in the comments! I hope everyone had a great holiday and here's to the New Year!
